How does microneedling work to reduce the appearance of scars?
The procedure prompts a healing response from the body, causing the skin to plump and thicken. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars.
What should I avoid after my microneedling treatment?
For best results with microneedling (collagen induction therapy), use a zinc-based sunblock to avoid sun exposure after treatment. Also avoid glycolic acid, retinol, and acidic or active ingredients in skincare products.
When will I see results with collagen induction therapy?
Initial results are visible within a week or two. You may notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant. The final results will take a few months to appear.
